  • Between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm only
  • Maximum of 2 hours at the camp
  • Even numbered campsites are allowed on even numbered days and odd numbered campsites on odd numbered days
  • All amenities are CLOSED (i.e. washrooms, office, playgrounds)
    –Electricity is on (during day only)
    –Water is on
    –Urgent requirements only – no trailer or site maintenance

All campers will be expected to follow Ontario COVID-19 safety protocols (e.g. physical distancing, washing of hands, groups no larger than 5) to prevent hazardous situations from occurring.
